Theo: Cubbies Not Interested In Manny

In the midst of an interview yesterday on WEEI, former Red Sox GM Theo Epstein said his new team has no interest in signing Manny Ramirez. Said Theo on The Dennis & Callahan Morning Show:

"I don't think [Ramirez is] a good fit for us."

Asked if he thought someone would take a chance on the former Sox slugger, Epstein correctly noted:

"It only takes one."

Theo And Jed Snare Rizzo For Cubbies

It was only a matter of time. With a gaping hole at first base, Theo Epstein and Jed Hoyer traded for former Red Sox first base prospect Anthony Rizzo.

Good for him!
